UN peace envoy to Yemen Jamal Benomar resigns

United Nations: The UN peace envoy to Yemen, Jamal Benomar, has resigned, a UN official has said, after losing support from Gulf countries for his mission in the conflict-driven nation.

The Moroccan diplomat had been UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon’s special envoy for Yemen since 2012.

Benomar has “indicated his willingness to leave his post” as Yemen envoy, a UN official told AFP yesterday on condition of anonymity.

Among the candidates who may take his place is Mauritanian diplomat Ismail Ould Cheikh Ahmed, who currently heads the UN Ebola mission in Accra, the official said.

Benomar’s departure came after the UN Security Council adopted a resolution calling for the swift resumption of peace talks and an end to violence in Yemen.
